Prevention trumps emergency mitigation every time
If your server, network or workstation suddenly failed, would you be able to reconstitute the necessary data and applications to get your operations back up and running with minimal disruption and loss?
If the answer is no, you are not alone. Many organizations have every intention of implementing a backup and recovery plan, but the task gets delayed repeatedly because of other pressing issues. However, it’s not hard to imagine what you’d be up against if your system suffered a major blow.
The good news is that if you are operating without a backup and recovery plan, or you have one that hasn’t been updated in a while, the time to act could not be better. Innovations in backup and recovery technology have progressed at light speed over the past few years. Today’s integrated solutions go beyond redundant drives and a patchwork of multiple front- and-back end systems and offer an array of streamlined approaches that can benefit any organization.
Cooper Technologies has leveraged these advances to develop and deploy preemptive strategies that can be executed with speed and accuracy. Using image-based and offsite backup systems, dual disk workstation set ups, archival repositories and more, we make sure your systems, applications and files are protected.
Risk reduction that protects your bottom line
Threats from viruses, hacking, power failures, and other manmade or natural disasters don’t need to ground your operations. Cooper Technologies can provide you with a hand-crafted frontline defense, rear guard fortification and perimeter reinforcements specific to your organization’s structure and requirements. Should problems arise, we can help you get back on track as soon as possible—minimizing downtime and lost productivity.
We start with a complete IT audit of your network and peripherals. Based on your system and bandwidth capabilities, we’ll design a plan that reflects current needs and future possibilities. Once approved, we implement and run full tests to confirm that the configuration captures your most important data, while allowing for detection, isolation and repair of potential hazards.
Having a reliable backup and recovery strategy is one of the best investments you can make. Cost is determined by the number of workstations, servers, software, amount of data and configuration. Planning is guided by best practices and focuses on how to maximize your ROI and protect your valuable assets. Contact us today and we’ll show you how you can get started on safeguarding your systems and resources.
Image-based backups add speed and flexibility to recovery operations
An image-based backup creates a virtual snapshot of everything on the hard drive including the operating system and system-related information such as folder structures, settings, applications, registry and user account information. Having an image-based backup of your system can be a lifesaver in the event of hard drive or server failure. It eliminates the monumental task of having to rebuild a system from scratch through reinstallation and recreation of applications and settings, and protects files and information that could be permanently lost in the event of a system break. This can save hours, if not days or weeks in down time and diminished productivity.
Many image-based backup systems incorporate encryption capabilities as well as data de-duping features to reduce storage space. Most current systems also use compressed image formats that allow for the restoration of individual files or groups of files.
